The health of Brazilian citizens comes first: The poison pack proposal must be REJECTED
Slow Food International stands with with the people of Brazil.
-
On May 29, the Brazilian National Congress will vote on what is known as the Poison Pack Proposal which aims to dismantle the country’s regulatory system for agrochemicals. The consequences of this would be disastrous, not just for Brazil and its people, but for the whole planet. We must all stand with our Brazilian brothers and sisters to call for the rejection of this proposal! @slowfood.brasil -

At the same time: more than 93% of fish stocks in the #Mediterranean are threatened by overfishing, facing uncertain futures. 🐟 So how can we protect these stocks while still supporting local fishing? Choose some lesser known fish, try out new flavors and see what every coast has to offer.
Visit the #SlowFish area at Terra Madre #SalonedelGusto to learn more! For more information visit www.salonedelgusto.com/en! (Data from @wwf Mediterranean Fishing Report 2017)

Come and taste the Balkans! 🧀 Terra Madre Balkans is well under way with producers and delegates from all around the Balkans coming to the European Parliament to present the finest in Balkan produce. A fitting event for World Biodiversity Day, the mini-fair put farmers and small scale producers face-to-face with policy makers as they showed off the rich gastronomy and diversity of their region. The tasting came before an important conference discussing the region's role in creating a sustainable and shared European future.

Today is World Bee Day!🐝 Our little friends are immeasurably important to life on earth, yet we have witnessed massive declines in the world bee population, due in huge part to human activity. ▪️World Bee Day was an initiative proposed to the UN by the Republic of #Slovenia, native home of the Carniolan honey bee and an Ark of Taste product: Karst Marasca Honey! ▪️ Interested in learning more about the importance of bees? #TerraMadre #SalonedelGusto has reserved a space to talk all about how bees support #FoodForChange, be sure to visit the area in Turin this September!

Next on our exploration of diverse products: Filindeu or ‘God’s yarns’.
A ritual kind of pasta typical of #Nuoro that only one woman in all of #Sardinia is still able to prepare: Paola Abraini! The dough needs to be kneaded for a long time until it reaches a very soft texture. Elasticity is fundamental, and is obtained by moistening the dough with salted water. Small portions of dough are then cut and stretched eight times with fingers until they turn into very thin yarns, that are laid in three layers on a wooden tray called ‘fundu’. Once the layers of pasta are done, they are dried in the sun, where it turns into a gauze-like flake: at this moment Filindeu is ready to be broken into pieces and put in boiling sheep broth.

Interested to learn more about these particular Ark of Taste products? Come see and even taste some at Terra Madre Salone del Gusto this September! Check out www.salonedelgusto.com/en for more details!

Parenica is a cheese native to the mountains of central Slovakia. Its name comes from the Slovak word for steaming, which should give you a hint as to how it is made... These long ribbons of cheese are made from #raw sheep's milk, although in some cases cow's milk can be added as well, as long as the ratio stays under 50% in favour of sheep. This smoky treat can be eaten fresh, with spuds or with everyone's favourite: halusky 🤤🤤 Parenica is on the ark of taste as it fights for survival. For all its goodness, it is really hard to make, and the highly skilled bacovia (herders) who make it are becoming scarce!

Ramadan Mubarak! 🌙 The appearance of the first crescent moon of the ninth month on the Islamic calendar means that our muslim brothers and sisters will begin a month of fasting between dawn and sunset each day. - The way to get through a day without eating or drinking? Think of the feast that awaits at the end of the day! Every night, the fasting breaks with the iftar, a feast enjoyed after sunset and are most often convivial and social occasions. The food on the table is a mix of and special holiday dishes, like Katta Pasta, a Slow Food Presidium from Timbuktu in Mali. These unusual threads of pasta are rolled by Malian women for special occasions!

Most of what is on your plate comes directly from #Seeds.
🌰🌱 ▪️But these days there is a terrible loss of lack of biodiversity in the seeds available. Continuous industrialization of #agriculture has resulted in a concentration of species and reduction in variety.
▪️Crop diversity is of vital importance in managing environmental changes and unpredictable climate. Therefore, we have a duty and a responsibility towards seeds: to protect and preserve them in order to guarantee richness and variety in our meals, but also to safeguard their biological and cultural heritage of diversity. ▪️ Want to learn more about the importance of seeds, and how you can use seeds as #FoodForChange?✊🍴 Come visit the Seed Area at Terra Madre Salone del Gusto this September! In the meantime visit: https://salonedelgusto.com/en/food-for-change/seeds-thematic-area/ for more information!🐌😊
We look forward to seeing you in Turin!

Can you believe that all these lovely 🍅 #tomatoes were grown by schoolkids? These were harvested by the students at Moonah Primary School in Tasmania as part of the @sakgf program, teaching children and young people how about where their food comes from and how to grow #fruit and #veg themselves.

This program is spearheaded in Australia by Stephanie Alexander @growcookeat, and is one of many such programs around the world, dedicated to food education in schools, such as the @edibleschoolyard project created by Slow Food vice president Alice Waters @alicelouisewaters!
